LETTERS: Patriotism, Shoreham taxes and more

There are 2 comments on the Newsday story from Jun 19, 2009, titled LETTERS: Patriotism, Shoreham taxes and more. In it, Newsday reports that:

Patriots without guns According to a letter writer, only those who wear military uniforms can be patriots ["A real patriot," Letters, June 15]. While many who have done so have had honorable intentions and acted with commendable bravery, the wars that were their missions, from Vietnam to Iraq, seldom had anything to do with saving our freedoms.

ILLEGAL high school students (Limited by Illegal Status article, 6/22/09) do not deserve benefits such as federal and state aid, scholarships in-state tuition. Why should they sap the shrinking pool of funds availble to the US citizens and naturalized citizens?. Our families are working 2 and 3 jobs to put our children thru school while taking out parent loans, second mortgages, etc. Not including the student loans necessary to pay for even state schools which are more affordable. Their parents chose to come here ILLEGALY and have yet to pay any penalties and they expect us to foot the bill for their children to get a college education??? If their children have to pay for their ILLEGAL status then so be it That's why we have laws in this country. Time to stop repeal the "anchor baby" law and remember what ILLEGAL really means.
